Staff, children and young people should:

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover the nose and mouth with a disposable tissue when sneezing, coughing, wiping and blowing the nose.
  • Dispose of all used tissues promptly into a waste bin. If no tissues available, cough and sneeze into the crook of the elbow.
  • Not attend school if they have symptoms of Coronavirus.

A modified cleaning specification now includes daily sanitising of all touch points such as door handles, push bars, light switches, handrails and desks in all schools/establishments.  This will be supplemented by a regular programme of deep-cleaning of all schools.
